Where is your Delight?

Psalm 37:4

 Delight thyself also in the Lord
and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Years ago, I was in an attitude - you know bad mood -
At church no less. It came time for the Confirmation class 
to be confirmed and the Pastor gave each of them a life verse.

I grumbled to myself - "I never got one of those."

Instantly, the Lord spoke to my heart 
"Do you want one?"

A bit startled that He'd come to me in my bad mood and all, 
I nodded and said yes. Not expecting an answer.

BUT an answer, He did give.
Without further word, I heard in my Spirit
Psalm 37:4

Now, I had no clue what that verse was. Prayed
it wasn't something bad.

And when I looked it up
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

How awesome is that!
And I have to say - that is my life.
He is always there.

And when I have wandered off and return
He is there.

I delight in the Lord
His awesome forgiveness
His righteousness
His Love

Father, keep my eyes and heart and mind on You.
Let my delight not stray
but remain fixed on the
Great I Am

For there is truly nothing else worthy

God is all.

Why worry?

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; 
and all these things shall be added unto you. 

In our rush rush world, we spin around worrying about what
we will eat, drink, or wear.
Chasing money to buy stuff.

Our Father in heaven knows what we need
Even what we desire.

And He has made provision for us.


Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

Seek God

For in Him we are complete.
In Christ we are righteous

If you're tired of chasing the wind,
Seek the kingdom of God.

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Fear God? 
Should we? Aren't we told how God is love?

Immediately after the fall in the Garden of Eden, 
Adam and Eve hid from God.
They knew.

They knew that to stand before a righteous, Holy God
Alone and on your own
NOT good.

But the story didn't end there. God provided for them
left them with the promise that one day
the deliverer would come.

And HE did

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Don't be deceived.
All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God

Only by the Blood of Jesus and 
acknowledging the Lord as Savior and standing
before God not alone but in Christ
Can we stand 

Do not be left alone.

The time is now.
Seek Jesus
Call out to Him

And He will answer.

And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

The days are lining up with the end times.
Deception fills the minds of  many, blotting out the truth
with the blackness of lies and partial truth.

Even the devil used scripture - with a twisted lie -
to try and seduce our Lord when He was being tested in the wilderness.

We must be wise.

HOW?  How do we assure that we are not deceived?

Know the Word. 
Get close to the Holy Spirit and let Him instruct you.

Stay close to friends that are strong Christians
Question the ways and thinking of the world
Ask for Wisdom for we are promised to have it if we but ask.

Pray, Study the Word, and abide in the Lord.

These are treacherous times, 
There will be many things that sound good
Tickle the ears and draw you away.

Stand firm on the Word of the Lord
And Abide in Him.

What do clouds have to do with it?

And then shall they see the Son of man coming
 in the clouds with great power and glory.

1 Thessalonians 4:17
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Are you ready?
We are to be watching and praying.
Looking for the coming of the Lord Jesus.

The times are ripe
There are wars and rumors of wars
Pestilence, famine, earthquakes
The love of many has grown cold

Many might say it has always been so
But one big marker is Israel

Only since 1948 has Israel returned to the scene
And what country holds the world in the news?

I tell you,
and Pray

The season is now.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.


Genesis 1:3
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Revelation 22:5
And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Light is in the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation.

Light changes things,
chases darkness away

John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God:
 for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause
 to come down for you the rain, the former rain, 
and the latter rain in the first month. 

Rain. Why is the mention of rain so important as to be included in the Word of God?
Agriculture - crops need the early and latter rains, 
the latter rain signifies the rain that matured the crops.

And in our walk with the Lord, the early rain of His Word on us brings us to life
But we also need the latter rain that matures us in our walk.
And readies us for His return.

Hosea 6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

Watch for the rain.
Wash yourselves in the Word
And be ready for His return.

Honour the LORD with thy substance, 
and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: 

First fruits. FIRST things first.
Why is that important?

Because many times if things aren't attended to first
They don't happen.

How do I know this?

My blog is Mornings with the Son.
and it is now 6 PM
Way past morning.

The Lord impressed on me the necessity of first fruit.
He must come first or all else is at peril.

We can not handle life without God.
He is a jealous God and desires to come first in our mind and hearts.

Not because He is lacking
But for our own protection and well-being.

We may vow to give unto God, maybe even tithe,
But unless it comes our first,
Unless we purpose to pull out of our income that first amount set aside for God
It just may not happen. 

He demands our first fruits.
Our best to be given unto Him
Whether it is time, money, or talents.

Not because He is greedy or need
But because we are.

Unless God is first in our lives
We will not prosper
if we think we can do it without God
we are sunk.

God comes first - always.

Shining Light

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 

The clouds shine with glory, but the glory is not theirs
the light from the sun on them makes them look glorious.

So to are we when we allow the Light of God's Son to shine on us.
It is not our greatness or righteousness
but God's.

Be humble realizing that only because of the gift of salvation
that we can shine.

And in turn shine that light on others,
let those in darkness know the light is available to them too
Offer the hope that is in Christ Jesus to all
who would believe.

What do you smell like?

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.

As we go about our day,
consider how you smell to those around you.
And I'm not talking about
if you used deodorant or splashed on cologne,

But as we go about our day,
consider our walk. Are we follower of God?
Walking in love as Christ loved us?

Guard your hearts and minds to remain
Godward and not caught up in the whirlwind of the turmoil of the world.

As Christians, we hold the light of the world within us.
Let it shine! Walk as God would have you 
And smell sweet.

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

The world clamors for freedom
or do they?

While the desire for liberty rests in the hearts of men and women
False teachings and false religions
shackle the minds of those looking to religion and man to save them.

Won't happen. 
Doomed they are and doomed they act out.
Flailing at anyone who comes against their sacred belief
even though it is wrapped in a lie.

Human nature - the flesh - craves for the tree Adam and Eve ate from
The Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil
The yardstick by which they might measure themselves
Puffing up pride, condemning others
They fail to see that no one can measure up to the high
righteous standard of perfection.

Only Jesus
The Son of man, Son of God  
Lived a perfect sinless life
and having come to set us free
died on a tree
The Ultimate sacrifice for the sin of the world

36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

As the world and those committed to 
the father of lies spin out of control

Stand and proclaim the Liberty of the Lord

Only in Jesus can you be free!

The evil in our midst

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, 
they shall inherit the earth.

How fitting that on 9/11 we are shown more proof that evil roams the world.
How crazed, how demonic, for a people to kill over a movie.
And in so doing, they show who they follow.

But do no be deceived
Our adversary, the devil, prowls about
seeking those he might devour with hate, pride, greed

Psalm 37:27
Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

We win not by killing the evil
We win by following the Living God

Romans 12:21
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Let us be wise
let us choose the way of life.

Be followers of Christ
Proclaim Jesus
Fear Not

Trouble Comes

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

It is true, in this life trouble will come.
Truer still - our help comes from the Lord.

Why do people suffer?
Why did crazed mad men slam planes into buildings?
Why do children suffer?

Why are loved ones afflicted with painful disease?
Why do we lose loved ones?

There are no easy answers 
No answers that bring comfort
No reason that makes it right

But what I do know,
our help is in the Lord.
It will not always be so

Death has been conquered by our risen Lord.
There is a place and a time when sorrow will be no more.
He will wipe away our tears

And no more will we ask why.

Joy in the Morning!

Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

It's a new day! 
New mercies. New opportunities.

Take in a deep breath, check your heart,
humble yourself before the Almighty and
ask Him to create a new heart in you.

And then pause, reflect on His Goodness
And be glad in the Lord
We are His
and He is our God.

Shout for joy!

Beauty of holiness

Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

Come before Him.
Imagine that, coming before the Lord
But isn't that what we are doing in Sunday mornings?

Or whenever you are seeking Him.

This weekend before church
Contemplate the glory due the name of the Lord
Consider the offering you want to bring
Go to come before Him
And worship
Clothed in the righteousness given us by Jesus
the beauty of holiness.

Abide with me

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:23

So what was the question?

22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

God, abiding in us,
Jesus came and was fully man and fully God.
Now, in our vessels of clay
God abides in us.

And what must we do to have God abide in us?
Love Jesus, and
Keep His Words

Tuesday, September 4, 2012


John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus is the Word of God.

Follow Him and you will do well.

Taking Time to be Grateful

It's a bright and beautiful day.
What will you do with this gift?

1 Chronicles 16:34
give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good;
for his mercy endureth for ever.
